On his own, our brand ambassador Robert Jasper climbed through the Eiger Nordwand in the Rope Solo style, Rotpunkt, one of the most challenging climbing styles of all, using only the natural rock stops, but securing himself with a rope, on "new ground". The route "Meltdown" 7a+ is now the latest climb through the most famous north face of the Alps!
And the Mühle Seebataillon GMT was also there.
Mühle Glashütte congratulate Robert Jasper on this special achievement and wish him all the best for his expedition to the largely unexplored northern Patagonian Ice Sheet starting tomorrow.
